LED front/rear turn signals, reverse, cornering lights?

Just wondering if anyone has swapped out the front/rear turn signals, reverse and/or cornering lights with LED ones? Just wondering how difficult it would actually be and if anyone could recommend a good source. Thanks in advance!

Fronts, no they are a part of the light but side markers yes. Bimmian has a great pair of LED clear or smoked that are plug and play with no codes. And the rears are also a part of the light. Good luck.

Are you not able to just change the bulbs to LED ones?

I've always believed the car would complain thinking they (LED's without some sort of resistor combined with them) are burnt out normal bulbs.

Most cars will give a "fast" turn signal trying to tell you there's a bulb out, I can only imagine what the 1-er will do.

LED Turn Indicators.

These are CANBUS compliant from MyLitCo.

This is what my stealth LED bulbs look like.
